1. One
2. Two
3. Three
4. Four

## The rotor core loss of 3 phase induction motor at no-load is

The rotor core loss of 3 phase induction motor at no-load is:

1. Practically zero
2. Small
3. Large
4. Half of the full load

## For a three-phase induction motor, the reactance of the rotor circuit is maximum at

For a three-phase induction motor the reactance of rotor circuit is maximum at:

4. Starting

Explanation:

Rotor reactance = s * Rotor reactance at standstill position

Under starting condition s = 1, Hence the rotor reactance will be maximum at starting

## The stator of 3-phase induction motor produces magnetic field which by nature is

The stator of 3-phase induction motor produces magnetic field which by nature is

2. Rotating
3. Alternating
4. None of above

## What happens to the power factor of rotor circuit of 3 phase induction motor when its slip increases

What happens to the power factor of rotor circuit of 3 phase induction motor when its slip increases:

1. P.F increases
2. P.F decreases
3. P.F remains constant
4. P.F is independent of slip

Explanation:

Rotor P.F = Rotor Resistance/Rotor reactance

With an increase in slip the rotor reactance increases (due to increase in frequency) while the rotor resistance is constant. Thus with increase of slip, the P.F decreases.
